2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
33cl screw-cap. As you open the bottle - sharp smell of herbal hops hits your nose. Pale golden (SRM 3) clear pour with thick, big head, that stays for almost a minute. Medium bitter pale lager, with slightly more hops than usual (close to bohemian pilsener). Slightly citric. Light bodied and rather thin. Actually quite dry. Average carbonation. Short bitter finish.
This is a drinkable pale lager. Similar to Estonian Saku Originaal and A. Le Coq Alexander.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
A half finger of head on a clear, yellow colored body. Poor head retention.
The aroma is grain and a stale clover honey. Weird.
The taste is quite bitter with a high level of dryness and pucker factor. Not good.
The texture is crisp with a ton of carbonation and light body.
Thereís too much going against this beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Istanbul Supermarket, Smethwick. Notes of cinder toffee. Other notes of cellophane wrapping, perhaps enclosing some flowers, which are being taken to a brassy paramour at work. Always a bit risky making a move on someone at work. Anyway, this Romanian lad is friskily fizzy, urbanely crisp and sheet ice-like; coupled with a hesitation of coco malt. The flavours are confidently low-key (i.e. there isnít that much flavour). But blow me, this is delicious - it tastes like that beer in Ice Cold in Alex - well earned. 3000 rates is nonsense of course - a meaningless milestone. And yet, oh and yet, itís also a chance to reassess oneís life progress. And this is where I am - live tweeting a can of Romanian Lager. Whisper it, but I think I just might have ímade ití. Top of the World, Ma.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks eyes_wide_shut. Clear pale golden. Aroma of corn, a bit of hay and light grassy notes. Sweetish and grainy flavor with a bit of grassy hops notes in a mildly bitter finish. Light-bodied. Not too offensive.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Following my Romanian wife into the world of "wonderful" Romanian beer. Pours pale yellow with a small white head that dissipates quickly with some residual lacing. Aroma is grain, hay, corn syrup. Flavor is about the same, a bit of green apple. Lightly sweet, light grassy bitter finish. Not bad for a pale lager.
